Mansfield’s winter wonderland gives Santa a warm reception!
Heathcotes Mansfield is renowned for their generous hospitality and last week they literally rolled out the red carpet to welcome an extra-special guest. It was none other than Santa himself, finding time in his busy festive schedule to visit the services for the afternoon.
Mr Claus was mightily impressed with the preparations made for his arrival. The summer house in the garden was transformed into a winter wonderland grotto complete with icicles, hand-crafted festive decorations, fir trees and scarlet furnishings in keeping with the VIP’s favourite colour. For Father Christmas, it felt very much like a home from home. He enjoyed chatting to the service users and handing out gifts – plenty of presents were on offer and nobody left the grotto empty-handed.
Santa has now returned to Lapland for his final preparations but, given the warm reception he received at Mansfield, we’re sure that he’ll be back there on Christmas Eve!
